One advantage of gloomy days is the Minuteman is a very quiet time.

First time in weeks I could go all out with little to worry about but the squirrels and the bunnies. No retimed lights. No cars. Few people. Just an empty ribbon of macadam.

(Maybe I’m overthinking, but the squirrels in particular seem to have forgotten how to cross the road.)

Anyhow, I always say hi. This time I stopped to take a picture.

On March 24, 2019, showers ended before dawn and it was the first glorious spring day, hitting 60s but with some gusty winds. Cary headed out for his first ride of 2019 on the Minuteman Commuter Bikeway, heading towards Bedford from his home right off the Minuteman in Arlington center. Early afternoon in Lexington he clipped handlebars with another rider heading in the other direction. They both crashed badly, both were taken to Lahey Hospital. The other rider was released a few days later. Cary didn't make it.

Next Mission: Since it's spring, a garden center
